Washing on the Board (Chipboard, That Is)

I loved this project. I designed it for my stampers this month for our Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape Stamp Camp.

Washi Tape Ideas-Door Hanging

First off, we did the direct to paper (in this case, chipboard) technique with Wisteria Wonder.  Then we embossed the image from the Toil & Trouble stamp set in black.  Added some washi tape, punched a hole and put in ribbon, and added a little sparkly skull and crossbones at the bottom.  A perfectly fun and simple 3D item to hang on a door, cabinet, or Halloween tree!

This image is a quote from a famous William Shakespeare play.  I’ve got a stack of 10 pieces of rectangle chipboard that will be delivered to the first stamper who correctly names the play this quote is from.  Please leave a comment below with your name and the play.  (Comments are moderated, but are timed so I’ll know who is the first one.)

VC Rocks July Blog Hop – Daydream Medallions Extras!

I am so excited to be part of the VC Rocks Blog Hop this month.  We are sharing gift and non-card projects.  You probably came from June Reister's blog – www.junescreations.blogspot.com .  If you ever get lost along the way, you can always start at the beginning – www.vcrocks.blogspot.com

One of the stamp sets I ordered for my Sale-A-Bration rewards this year was Daydream Medallions.  It was one of the most expensive stamp sets in the catalog.  Here is the stamp set (it does come with 2 stamp boxes):

This is a great set all by itself, but did you know there are EXTRA parts?  Be careful when you are mounting your stamp set – save all the extra rubber die cuts.  Why you ask?

See those larger three stamps?  They each came with a diecut inside that easily pops out.  Lovely, perfect circles.  DO NOT THROW THESE OUT!  Instead, find some extra blocks and mount those circles.

I have used these circles more than the actual Daydream Medallions stamp set. 

One of the new stamp sets from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog is Googly Ghouls.  I knew I had to have it!  I created a fun little gift tag for a spooktacular treat:

I used Wisteria Wonder card stock and stamped the circles in Wisteria Wonder as well.  I used the Labels Collection Framelits with my Big Shot for the tag.  Then I embossed the Frankenstein, bat, and booo phrase in a mixture of Black and Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I covered the top of the beaker with the new ribbon in the Holiday Catalog attached the tag with white Baker's Twine.  I popped up that little bat with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Here's a close-up of the tag:

Another project I created with those fabulous circles is this recipe scrapbook page:

This is the punch I serve at my annual Catalog Pick-Up Party.  It is a crowd pleaser to be sure.  The wine glass stamp is from the new Embellished Events stamp set, and the "cheers!" stamp is from the new Happy Hour stamp set (another favorite of mine).

I hope you've enjoyed this stop on the blog hop.  Karen Gibson's blog – www.kraftingwithkaren.blogspot.com – is your next stop.  Enjoy!
